The cigar starts with a mix of a bright wood note and black pepper. After a few draws, the brightness of the wood fades back and the mixture is a lighter wood with black pepper. At three quarters of an inch in, I begin getting a slight coffee note in the background. The slight coffee is also present on the retrohale which is primarily a clean, dry wood note. At an inch and a quarter, a bit of cream joins the profile to mix with the wood and subtle black pepper and coffee. As the third comes to a close, the mixture of wood, cream and coffee is coming together nicely. The strength in this third is slightly below medium.
